Representative Text

1 I can ne’er forget the day when Jesus saved me
Speaking pardon to my guilty, sin-sick soul,
Or the blessed words of comfort there he gave me,
“Go in peace, thy faith hath sav’d and made thee whole.”

Refrain:
Growing brighter ev’ry day,
Growing better all the way,
Let the hallelujahs roll,
Jesus sweetly saves my soul,
And my way is growing brighter ev’ry day.

2 What he gave me in that hour was but a foretaste
Of the fulness of his blessing yet in store,
And the sunlight of his presence groweth brighter,
Day by day his grace aboundeth more and more. [Refrain]

3 In his pastures green and large I’m ever feeding,
And my thirst is quench’d where living waters flow,
While from “grace to grace” the Spirit still is leading
And from “glory unto glory” here below. [Refrain]

4 I am resting on the wonderful assurance
While so crowned with glory is my pilgrim way;
“That the pathway of the just still brighter groweth,
Shining more and more unto the perfect day. [Refrain]

Lelia (Mrs. C.H.) Morris (1862-1929) was born in Pennsville, Morgan County, Ohio. When her family moved to Malta on the Muskingum River she and her sister and mother had a millinery shop in McConnelsville. She and her husband Charles H. Morris were active in the Methodist Episcopal Church and at the camp meetings in Sebring and Mt. Vernon. She wrote hymns as she did her housework. Although she became blind at age 52 she continued to write hymns on a 28-foot long blackboard that her family had built for her. She is said to have written 1000 texts and many tunes including "Sweeter as the years go by." Mary Louise VanDyke Go to person page >
